Four new features coming to Greenville skate park thanks to GYAC grant 

Already considered a highlight in this city among many youth, the skate park at Veterans Park is now ready to receive its first round of new features and equipment. 

The Greenville City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday evening to accept a grant in the amount of $21,500 from the Greenville Youth Advisory Council — the youth branch of the Greenville Area Community Foundation — which will lead to the purchase of additional features to be installed at the skate park. 

Greenville officials and skaters celebrate new skate park

Celebrating the opening of this community’s skate park with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday, surrounded by several dozen young skaters, City Manager George Bosanic was at a loss as to who should cut the ribbon. 

Searching the crowd for someone willing to take up the honor, it would turn out the most humble individual of the bunch would be selected as everyone began pointing their fingers toward 16-year-old Thomas Allen.
